The food and drinks were excellent and our waitress was great and made helpful suggestions. Wish you were closer to Atlanta but will definitely visit when in SSI again.
First time at Ember & won’t be our last! I want to try everything on the menu. It was phenomenal!!!
Amazing service and food!
The food was outstanding, and the infused cocktails were unique. The staff was very accommodating to our every need. We really enjoyed ourselves. We definitely will return.
Loved the decor and the room in the back for quieter conversations with our friends. The food was excellent in quality and presentation. Also, the Caesar was fantastic as was the scallops with risotto. We will definitely return when in town. A fabulous find for sure!
Very pleasant. The Cuban pizza was outstanding!
In for vaca and took the fam - Go here - you won’t be disappointed!
The waiter was very attentive. I had the Fraser salad and pizza. The experience was fabulous
Love coming here when I visit SSI. It’s a great place for a great meal
Had a fantastic time celebrating a birthday! All the food was excellent and the service was amazing. I will absolutely be back!!
Service was so so. Asked to order apps and entrees at same time. Food was okay but overpriced.
We really enjoyed our meatzilla pizza, tasty & filling. Had to try the Eula Mae, excellent!! We shared both & it fed 2 seniors. We would definitely recommend Ember and will revisit on our next trip to the area 👌
We really enjoy eating at Ember and recommend it to anyone that asks about SSI restaurants. The food and cocktails are excellent and the service is great. It’s got a great vibe and is just a fun place to be.
Did not feel very welcome by hostess nor server . Food was very good but service not so good . Won’t be going back .
We actually liked the food very much but it was just over the top! My daughter and I both had the scallops and they were delicious over risotto which was also very good, but they also had roasted cauliflower, red peppers, and a bunch of other vegetables with a huge drizzle of balsamic and all the flavors were fighting each other! SIMPILFY !!!! Also a friend had the vegetarian pasta and the same thing! She could hardly even find her pasta which was supposed to be the main ingredient. Again I say to the chef, SIMPILFY your dishes and put together things that do not fight one another and it would be amazing!
Yum Yum Yum! Started with the grilled Caesar salad and shrimp scampi. Both fantastic. My husband had the steak special which he loved and I had the scallops. Our food could not have been better.
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was fun, and the service was top-notched! We will definitely be back!
Food is very, very good. Restaurant atmosphere is not as good as the food. Still, it's a nice evening and certainly a solid choice for a nice evening.
Wonderful food and service, as usual. Please keep rotating new dishes.
If you love salt, you will love this place. All food is covered in salt even the bread. We were unable to eat the food. My Caesar lettuce was placed on a grill, this made the lettuce very soggy. Pretty disappointed unfortunately.
Great food and service, best pound cake ever!
Great food with a very unique and varied menu. Something for everyone, I would highly recommend eating here.
All around good experience. Got us right to our table when our reservations were due.
Lots of options for both the meat lovers and vegetarian! Loved their wine selection as well.
Incredible staff and service! Tried several appetizers and entrees, all excellent!
Great food and drinks. My only complaint was the waitress kept insisting that we ordered all out appetizers and entrees at the same time. I just wanted to order a drink and appetizer while I looked at the menu. No reason to rush a special occasion date night.
Everything was wonderful!
So good!! We had great service and the food was delicious! I’m so glad to have a new favorite restaurant in SSI!
Excellent menu selection along with appropriate and attentive service. Personal touch even with masks and social distancing. We had a lovely evening dinner and will be back soon.
Absolutely one of the best dining experiences on the Island. Great staff, exceptional dining, superior atmosphere!
The food is consistently outstanding. Fire baked brie and bread and the best NY Strip steak within 300 miles!
Ember does an excellent job with social distancing
My kids loved Embers, surprisingly, and the food has very large portions, very fresh entrees, excellent ambiance and service.
Food and staff were excellent. Restaurant was clean and well maintained. Will go there again when we are back on the Island.
Ember is a very special place and we always look forward to a wonderful, quiet dinner there. The menu changes often and there is always something new to try. The fish chowder is fantastic as are the Scallop and Shrimp dishes, also the Steak and Lamb dishes.
We always request our favorite waitress "RHEANNA". She is outstanding and we always look forward to seeing her. "Our favorite waitress on the island." She is an awesome person !!!!!!!!
Great hidden gem of a restaurant! Fabulous farm to table food and craft coctails! Definitely would go back when in town again!
We love Ember. The food and service are excellent.
I wish it had a few more options for entrees. Last time we dined there, we ordered three appetizers and a half each. It was really too much food, but it was great.
I love the farm to table concept. The food was very good with unique twists.
Excellent experience, food, service, and ambience were all on point.
